In both Nero and itunes there is an option to not have a gap between tracks. In Nero it's on the first burning page. In itunes, it's in the preferences (i think under burning). Not sure about ezcdcreator though. Try out Nero's 30 day unrestricted trial - it works fine.

Yeah, it's not the burning or decoding software, the gaps are built into the files. There's no way around them.

I would love to download SHN and Flac, but my connection is just too slow. Those 30 minute Dark Stars take like 10 hours to download for me. I do have some SHN downloads, like for the last TWO WEEKS I've been downloading the second set of DSO 1/24/03. Believe me, if I could drop this slow internet connection, I'd be dl'ing shn and Flac instead...

I agree with Jim, and I respectfully disagree with Brad's assertion that the MP3's are the cause of it. I have d'l'ded MP3 shows from other sites in years past and there were no gaps. Not to deny the superiority of FLAC and SHN, I completely agree with the philosophy of the lossless format, but, like you Jim, I have a problem with the extreme amount of time it would take me to d'ld a 1 GIG show file (no pun intended :) ... I will get there, though... Meantime, nothing left to do but smile, smile, smile at our good fortune in having this resource! Thanks again all;

A bit late now, but...
If you get an audio editing program, like wavelab, audacity, goldwave, etc. Then you can open the mp3, crop any gaps at the start and end (usually between 0 and .5 of a second depending on what encoded it and what settings were used) then save the file as a .wav
Then just burn all for gapless music.
